Natural History Magazine Looks at Darwin and Evolution

Scientists are fighting back against the flat-earth mentality seen from right wing extremists who desire to suppress science in favor of creationism (now passed off under the new name of intelligent design). In addition to the study from Nature mentioned earlier, Natural History Magazine has devoted a section of the November issue to Darwin and Evolution. One particularly interesting article (which unfortunately only has a portion on line) is on Evolution in Action. While evolution typically takes place slowly enough to make it easy for opponents of science to pretend it is not occurring, this article provides several examples to the contrary.
